Cloudy,The whole world is divided in two parts: those who think that caviar is only "fish eggs", and the ones that think that caviar is very special.
Or, if you like better, those who think that truffle is only stinking, and those who think that their smell is the ambrose smell, the Paradise Parfume..... Or you love them, or you hate. My wife goes out on balcony, when I eat truffles.....

Somewhere, I read this phrase: God invented truffles, the Man invented Cooks....

I myself don't lioke truffles, could well live without it.. but I really like caviar, but for me it's much too expensive...
had it once on my cousin's wedding, he got married into a danish steak house family, and they had tons of real beluga caviar.. among oysters and all this stuff...
but the roastbeef had been one of the best in my life..
I don't want to know what they paid for their only daughter to get married...
okay, well they are not living together anymore...

It is not really a food item but some old vintage wine can be mighty pricey!

I really like caviar, & over the years, while I've got to sample what's supposed to be the "good stuff", I now always order the new American types. I simply like them better (which is also better for my wallet - lol). Favorites are salmon, trout, paddlefish, & hackleback.

As far as "vintage" wines, I could never get into them. With wine, & frankly everything else "food", I go with what I like. Once attended a friend's wine tasting where we were all supposed to bring a bottle. It was very surprising to find that my bottle of $6.99 Spanish Brut sparkling wine was voted superior to the Dom Perignon someone else brought - LOL!!!!!

I wish I liked truffles! So many of the top restaurants I've visited use either truffle shavings or truffle oil as a finishing touch. The smell is enough for me!

Haven't eaten caviare for many years - along with veal, I choose not to eat this kind of food.
